I watched all 4 movies via Netflix (on Blu-Ray!) and I agree, the last one was the best, so you'll enjoy it. I also liked the first one, "Bender's Big Score." If you like Futurama, you owe it to yourself to watch all 4 movies though. This show's respect of canon and continuity is fantastic and treated far differently than most cartoons in that the passage of time is acknowledged (i.e., there isn't a reboot every week). I wouldn't be surprised if "Rebirth" makes mention of the fact that the year is now 3010.

I'll have to put those movies in my Netflix queue. I had only watched this show occasionally when it was o n Fox, but I enjoyed the two shows last night.

Anyone know where seasons 3 and later are available? I bought Seasons 1 and 2 from Xbox Live and I am half way through season 2. But I would like to watch the remaining shows over the Summer.

I don't believe this. All the seasons of futurama, (at least I think it's all) are now available on Netflix streaming. It must have just become available yesterday becasue I don't remember seeing them last week when I looked for them and ended up paying for the first two seasons from Xbox Live.

it shows Volumes 1 through 4 available for streaming. Do those volumes cover all the shows that were broadcast on Fox?

Yes, Seasons 1-4 were the ones on Fox, and season "5" is the four movies broken up into 16 episodes.

This week was more like the Futurama of old... not that the other episodes were horrible or anything... but this one felt more like it could have been one of the early episodes.

Indeed. It may have been the best episode so far. I loved their take on H.G. Wells' The Time Machine, the Killer Robot World, the Fertility Banquet World, the incorporation of the late 60s song "In the Year 2525," and the killing Hitler bit. The death of life on earth was so bleak and poignant, especially when Fry visited the Cavern on the Green to see Leela's message. It reminded me of the saddest episode ever, "Jurassic Bark."

Then they traveled to the heat death of the universe. Incredible. Then they witnessed the second (and even the third) Big Bang. Awesome.

It was the most cinematic episode of Futurama I think they've ever done, and it was really beautiful, the story and the visuals, and of course, incredibly clever.

This episode will be hard to beat, but even if none of the remaining episodes come close, this one alone will be worth the revival of one of the best TV series ever.

I'm thrilled over it.

I hope Comedy Central continues to support Futurama. I've always been a fan and I have it on series record on my DVR. Last week's episode was hilarious.

... And they even got it right about it being impossible (as far as we know) to build a "reverse" time-machine. (Sorry Terminator/"City on the Edge of Forever" fans.)

Well, they've already broken that rule, a couple times. Loved the call-back to the Roswell ep.

The time machine "follows Terminator rules, that is, it's one way only and you can't go back. This is in contrast to, say, Back To The Future rules, where back and forth is possible, and, of course, Timerider rules, which are just plain silly."

I also liked the multiple destroyed statues of Liberty... ape version, bird version, etc... nod to the Planet of the Apes.

It was, as noted, a good mix of the comedy and pulling at the heartstrings that when Futurama does it well, they do it very well.

I hope the ratings are good so far, because this is a good show to have back.

Yeah baby!  It's Halloween!

Don't worry, its not your fault that Fox never aired this show. Quite a diamond in the rough.

Ha! It should be noted that in the recent episode, Lrrreconcilable Ndndifferences, Orson Welles was voiced by Maurice LaMarche, who also did the dubbed-in voice for Orson Welles in Ed Wood.

Has there been any info on the Futurama ratings? HAs it been renewed for next year? I'm really enjoying it. Plus I've been watching the episodes that were broadcast on Fox from Netflix streaming. Although I've only watched around 60% of them.

After almost seven years since the last original episode aired, the sixth season premiere of "Futurama" in June led COMEDY CENTRAL to its best Thursday prime ever among young men. Since then, the animated sci-fi comedy has continued its out-of-this-world winning streak, with a season-to-date average of 2.5 million viewers each week, a 1.56 P18-49 rating, a 3.02 M18-34 rating and 3.26 M18-24 rating.

The show came back with an order of 26 episodes - so if this is the 'season finale' coming up (12th episode + the special holiday episode for December) - there will be another 13 episode season at some point.

TV Notes
Things Are Looking Good for Another Season of Futurama
By Josef Adalian and Glada Velman, New York Magazine's 'Vulture' Blog - February 2nd, 2011

Break out the Slurm, Futurama fans: Matt Groening's can't-be-killed toon may be headed for another season of episodes on Comedy Central. Katey Sagal, who supplies the voice of Leela when she's not kicking ass on (or nabbing a Golden Globe for) Sons of Anarchy, told Vulture over the weekend that she's heard the show will definitely be back for more. "Futurama just got ordered again for another season," she told us while walking the red carpet at the DGA Awards. "I don't know if I'm supposed to say that yet. But it just did." Vulture did some investigating and found that Sagal might have been a tad early in declaring the show renewed — but that she's definitely on to something.

Our insiders say the show's studio, 20th Century Fox TV, has been quietly talking to the voice actors on the show to make sure they'd be on board for more episodes, and Comedy Central has indicated to 20th that it's interested in keeping the show going. However — and this is important — insiders from both camps insist that no formal negotiations have taken place and that no deal is done for a new round of episodes. But that could change quickly: Because of the long lead times associated with animation, 20th and Comedy Central would probably want to nail things down within the next month or two in order to ensure that a new supply of the funny would be ready by summer or fall 2012.

Futurama die-hards won't have to wait that long for new episodes, however. Vulture hears the second half of a previously ordered batch of 26 episodes — what Comedy Central is calling season 7 of the show — is currently set to premiere June 23 on the network. Futurama returned to series TV last June after a seven-year break and drew nearly 3 million viewers — giving Comedy Central its highest-rated night of the year up until that point — then held up well for the rest of the season.

Good news everyone!

Comedy Central Renews 'Futurama' With 26-Episode Order

By NELLIE ANDREEVA | Thursday March 24, 2011 @ 12:25pm PDT

That's pretty good for a second lease on life: Comedy Central is finalizing a deal for a 26-episode seventh-season pickup of Futurama. Comedy Central resurrected Matt Groening and David X. Cohen's animated sci-fi comedy in 2009, six years after it was cancelled by Fox, with a 26-episode sixth-season order. The first batch of 13 episodes from Season 6 averaged 2.5 million viewers, with the remaining 13 airing this summer. The 26 newly ordered episodes will follow the same pattern, airing in two installments of 13 episodes in 2012 and 2013. Futurama has been a big hit online, growing from 1 million Facebook fans at its launch on Comedy Central to 11 million.

I wondered what was going on. I've had this nagging feeling that I've missed out on some of the revival.
